Where Is Qatar from Complete Streets?
In Qatar, it is perceived that the country's street system should be improved. Traffic crashes and congestion are seen as a threat to the safety of the community in Qatar and a negative element that detracts from the attractiveness of its main streets and the comfort of its users. Promoting a strategy such as the complete streets policy in Qatar could help enhance its streets livability, safety, and walkability. In order to understand where is Qatar from the complete streets policy, a ten-point tool was used to evaluate three local neighborhoods, including one old/traditional, one recently developed, and an upcoming future neighborhood. The results of this study imply that the future/upcoming development performs well against the evaluation criteria of the complete streets policy compared to the old neighborhoods. This shows Qatar's commitment and significant progress towards developing complete streets for its citizens to achieve active lifestyle and sustainability
